to have you with us thank you for having me here so we start from the latest news and we be out in the country has been swept with violent protests and government crises here as an expert at what is your version of what's going on has nato led to lacasse failed in the country last time i have been to tripoli it was on the twenty first of december last year. i had the chance to meet with all the main players with the most awful of the julian with the prime minister with the foreign minister with the oil and gas minister and i spent the whole day in tripoli and i still have a feeling that i was in a very fragmented city three or four militias hating each other competing with each other sometimes shooting each other and it seems like the pieces of. political puzzle the mob get together we see it live get back to you know it has to take time and it has to take goodwill from all the sides which were involved in a very long lasting conflict which to my personal opinion was
a real civil war and in some areas of libya this civil war is not over in the south there is the whole desert area as an area of well to the certain extent no man's land it's out of control of. new governmental forces its own of tribes it's a zone all of controlled arms trafficking so i think that the difficult time fully b.-a will last for quite a significant period of time if need be and political elite is not ready to sit at the round table that's actually which russia was proposing last summer which african union was proposing last summer which president of south africa jacob zuma will be proposing on the twenty ninth and thirtieth of january in at this ababa that the african union summit african union summit to my mind may play a very positive role in putting that roundtable in the center of tripoli or any other libyan city in order to inspire the process. of national reconciliation but
that's all political talk if you look at the last of an ordinary libyan guy was he better off before or now before the ordinary libyan guy it's very difficult to say because there are ordinary libyan guys and big guys the ordinary libyan guys in tripoli and ordinary libyan guys and desert living with that tribes and these are very different ways of living some people are happy to and i saw it physically in tripoli some people are happy to drink openly the moonshine which was absolutely prohibited in the time of warmer today and some people are really happy with that fact because then favor of sharia laws and everywhere in the country some people when you talk to them and dream about so-called dubai scenario they want to see libya as a mediterranean resort with five star hotels because you know isn't all that stuff but some people love thinking about the purity and islamic identity some people talk about necessity of establishing the sharia law of the country and all of these
lawmakers world and all over the arab world brazil many different points of view you could probably say today that you can find in libya even within one family total unanimity of views what are the chances that his son safe islam will actually get a fair trial a lot will depend on that that would show the new face of libya actually i think that he will be in the government and the new libyan judicial system should show that it really share is the values of human rights rule of law and democracy in the new libya and that was my message when i was talking to. the juliette in tripoli on the twenty first of december i also asked him about the initiate the i.c.c. you hate to bring the case so this is a nation of numbers could offer to international criminal court actually his response was a very reserved and after that they said that it's very important to show. go to
the international community that and you leave does not have anything in common with the previous regime now that western companies are lining up to get lucrative deals with the new libyan authorities where does russia stand with that some of the russian companies have already. started their operations in libya like guess probably of his working together with any of the extract oil the russian railroads are ready to give back all the russian companies are talking to their counterparts in libya about returning to the bia i got a very clear message from the political leadership and from the prime minister when i was in tripoli on the twenty first of december that you libyan government welcomes russian companies to be back so why not ok let's talk about syria now that's been top news for a while now what makes syria different from other countries that have been subject to the. arab spring and at this point how big is
a sites support base because we don't hear much about that syria is different because syria is a cornerstone for political settlement in the middle east and the geo strategic role of syria is sorry to say that and i built want to insult anybody but it's more important than more crucial than geo strategic role for the international stability people that many other countries were covered by so-called arab spring that's why dealing with the syrian case we have to play political chess but not american football is that where people want intervening to say i don't think that the idea of intervention into syria is in there strategically speaking it's a wise idea i think that's what syria needs today it needs more political efforts it needs political dialogue and that's why i heard with the regret that president bashar assad said that he is not in favor of the continuing of the mission.
observers sent by the arab league are pretty upset when russia seriously think that observers sent by the arab league can play the role as a factor of stability we had russia also offered several times that russia can be a docking mechanism between the government and the opposition unfortunately all our proposals are being rejected for the time being can i ask you about the arab league i mean isn't it are they in a position to actually make demands such as i said ship step down isn't their role really to mediate rather than i demand anything like that but i think that their role is to mediate that's what the secretary general is saying and that's what he's proposing no to mediate to build bridges and we russia strongly believe that regional organizations should play more important role in today's international politics what is important to mention here is that we are protecting syria but not a syrian regime we are protecting syria of the country we are protecting syria as a nation we want to help syrian people and syria as a country so you bring up
a very important point because at this point if you look at it from the outside it does look like a full fledged war that's been going on for a while do you think a regime change in syria in order to protect the syrian people it's reasonable i seriously think that today the syrian political elite has to understand that the civil war will not lead to any political solution it will produce more blood from both sides it's useless hatred and it will make national reconciliation more and more difficult i think that i was here in france from all the camps involved in this fight should look at iraq a scenario should look at the libyan example should look at other sand examples in this woman's world of a set examples in there for we seriously think of that the civil war can all be a political solution what do you think finances and arms that free. syrian army
a syrian opposition delegations and we were meeting here in moscow i think at least four syrian opposition delegations were not hiding sources of finance they were saying that finances coming from different sunni states different kompany as individuals what we see in syria today and i really regret to see that we see more and more of a conflict security and conflict between the shia and the sunni bashar assad belongs to a family which is an ally we family the shia family the majority of the population in syria are sunni is and unfortunately that is one of the biggest problems of the middle east today we see more and more competition between the shia and the sunni in some cases it is represented by the competition between iran and turkey but in some cases it is represented by the competition between different political and really shows a religious circles within one state how big
a says support base at this point well i think that the support is rather substantial but it's not enough to arm all the opposition and to start massive war or mason mess of invasion against the syrian army so you just got back from sub-saharan africa are the vibes some the arab spring felt there in the region at all one of the most concerning. results for the so-called arab spring particularly the war in libya is the problem of arms trafficking in the south of the zone in sub-saharan i recently visited. and for these poor countries and what is happening in the desert what is happening in in the softer the zone is a real nightmare one of the tribal leaders said to me what happened in libya on the mind the markets of what market today saw get the chinese made manpad that was an alarm for american made stinger costs the price of two kalashnikovs it's for
nothing and i think it's a real problem it's a real problem because uncontrolled thinking may end up somewhere in the south of africa or somewhere in the south of europe do you think the fight for don't we nation over at the african research this could destabilize the region well the it's not the fight it's a kind of competition. suddenly many countries which forgot about the african continent during the ninety's to recognize that africa is the only continent in the world where you can get the assets for the real price or sometimes for the price which is on the market and today we see competition between many countries in the african continent it's not chinese domination like it was in the ninety's we see turkey was iran we see russia we see western countries we see brazil we see other players india malaysia i mean all the new economy is there and all the new economy
